ECED 524 Creating Communities: Guiding Young Children

Students focus on fostering children’s sense of belonging through the course by examining four central themes: framing community, supporting emerging identities, establishing a classroom culture, and developing problem-solving strategies. Students will draw on social constructivist and critical perspectives in designing equitable classroom communities and in developing practical approaches as they guide children in their own learning.
